Croatia offers a wealth of natural landscapes, stunning waterfalls and breath-taking scenery. The Plitvice National Park, situated between Zagreb, the capital and Zadar, is one of the oldest national parks in south-eastern Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register. Dubrovnik is circled by ancient walls and is home to a wealth of historical monuments and cultural sights.
Split is another fascinating city and is home to monuments and artefacts which date back to the 4th Century. If you want to sun yourself on the beach, head for Orebic or take a trip to the islands of Krk, Rab, Pag and Brac.
The Croatian coast has a typically Mediterranean climate consisting of hot, dry, sunny weather during summer, and relatively mild weather in winter. Average temperatures during summer should lie in the mid-to-high 20s although it is more likely that you’ll have temperatures well into the 30s. Winters are obviously cooler, although temperatures never really get below about 5°C.
